Green Ginger's sushi chefs wrap up dozens of traditional and specialty sushi rolls as wok gurus elegantly prepare a plethora of Asian entrees from Japan, Thailand, and China. Fillings such as spicy salmon, red snapper, and snow crab nestle within sushi and sashimi rolls, and tender morsels of beef or tofu decorate teriyaki and fried-rice entrees. Fully stocked bars produce an arsenal of cocktails blended with top-notch sake and liquors from brands such as Grey Goose, Kahlua, and Malibu.
At the Peachtree City location, flame masters showcase their spatula-wielding finesse behind a lively hibachi grill inside a glossy eatery with tile floors and blond wood wall accents. At the Decatur locale, live jazz plays on Saturday nights, muted blue lighting stretches across two bars, and a covered patio shields guests from rain and year-round visits from abominable snowmen.
The cooks at City Tap serve up a varied menu of shareable tapas and casual entrees, and the bartenders pour an array of libations. The bruschetta's toasted garlic bread comes topped with tomatoes and fresh basil, and the Dual Major starter lets guests study a sampler of cheese and a sampler of smoker meats and then take home a degree made of cocktail napkins. Signature barbecue sauce slathers the whiskey-pulled-pork sandwich, and fresh veggies top the artisan pizza. To wet the whistle, guest can sip imported beer, wine by the glass, and carefully crafted cocktails or live, local music that plays several nights a week.
Becky and Jason She moved to the United States from Taiwan in 1977. Nine years later, they opened Peking, a bustling Chinese restaurant in Peachtree City. The business’s success became too much for the couple, which led to their temporary retirement—just like Michael Jordan's, except that Becky and Jason were on more posters at the time. With a renewed sense of energy, they opened their latest venture, She’s Bistro & Sushi Bar. The restaurant serves up Japanese cuisine—hibachi-grilled meats and sushi—along with Chinese dinner combinations that pair sesame chicken, mongolian beef, and other entrees with deep-fried appetizers, soup, and brown or fried rice.
Anchored in the charming quarters of the 172-year-old Queen's Inn, these convivial eateries rouse patrons with a potpourri of upscale pub fare and a favourable lineup of draft beers. Bibbed partakers can abandon cutlery and white tuxedo jumpsuits in order to dig into Coppers Pub's Fat City burger, a handcrafted vessel of never-frozen meat draped in Canadian back bacon and a blanket of warm cheddar cheese ($10.99). Neighbouring patty aficionados at The Sports Tap and Grill can also summon the embrace of a toasted kaiser bun with a variety of Fat City protein fillers, including lean ground beef, tender ground turkey, all-natural chicken breast, and range-fed Wolfe Island bison. In addition to donning a classic triple crown of lettuce, tomato, and onion, the signature burger also musters the company of a complimentary french-fry brigade. Like the patient inventors of the bendy straw, a team of poised brew wizards eagerly awaits the verdicts of thirsty patrons and primes palates for smooth consumption at both watering holes with 20 ounces of Molson M, Creemore, and Murphy's stout ($5.52+, not included in this Groupon).
Every day, Rita's serves up fresh, fruitified Italian ice (around $1.89–$2.89) in more than 30 flavors (several are sugar-free), including strawberry, root beer, Swedish Fish, chocolate chocolate chip, piña colada, vanilla, key lime, and the unearthly RitaBerrious (formerly Mystery Ice). Along with creamy ice, Rita's also sells icy cream. Case in point: Rita's famously frozen old-fashioned custard (around $2.49–$3.59), a robust dish that—like revenge—is best served cold in a cup, cone, or overflowing El Camino truck bed. Rita's custard involves a different freezing process than ice cream and boasts a higher egg to yolk ratio, for a creamy texture that makes regular ice cream feel like gravel sprinkled with sandpaper shreds. Rita's most popular frozen treat, gelati (around $3.45–$4.39), takes its cue from brunch, twilight, and sporks and blends two great things to create an even greater thing—in this case, the flavorful variety of Italian ice with the smoothitude of frozen custard. Rita's also offers an assortment of specialty Misto shakes ($3.49–$3.99), fat-free soft-serve Slenderitas ($2.49–$3.49), and frozen-coffee Ritaccinos ($4.25), all of which make for a tasty treat as well as a deliciously soothing topical treatment for chicken pox.

Meals begin with a choice of 19 appetizers, including Eastern-inspired spring rolls teeming with vegetables and shrimp, swordfish ceviche marinated in citrus and infused with tropical salsa, and fresh-made chips and dip. Bold flavors emanate from main courses foraged by land, such as the java-grilled chicken fajitas, by sea, such as the grilled or blackened, salty-sweet wild Alaskan salmon, and by both, such as the lobster-tail-and-steak combination—a delicacy grown only on farms that encompass grassy fields and an entire ocean. Diners can compassionately pair dishes with their Dionysian soulmates by selecting from Java Tropico's cubby of house wines, containing glasses of cabernet sauvignon, chianti, pinot grigio, and champagne. Cosseted in an exotic ambiance of tropical-themed festoons, colorful rope lights, and a bevy of neon luminaries, patrons can enjoy the company of fellow diners while discovering what it would be like to inhabit the mind of a Devo band member.
